Thanks for the link to the website. I just found out that Cap'n Eddie lives a few blocks from me. Small world!! I've emailed him yesterday about making some pens for Freedom Pen project. I just emailed him again... hopefully, just maybe, I can get some time to learn face to face from someone who knows their stuff.

Default How to - carbide tip turning tool

I made my own but I don't call it "my version of..", I guess at most it would be "an alternative to.." To me, it is just my carbide lathe tool.

Just thought I would add that little bit.

That's a great source for the square carbide inserts. Thanks for posting it.

I just finished a tool holder for carbide inserts last week. I used some 5/8 round stock because I didn't have any square stock on hand and also the metal lathe I can use has a three jaw chuck and not a 4 jaw chuck.

I milled a flat on the 5/8 portion of the tool holder and left it at that.

Good for you. I also have made carbide turning tools. My cost, less handle, is about $10.00. I used standard cold rolled square stock. But it is so tough to drill I will use mild hot rolled next time. Your tips are less expensive than my source. Thanks for the...uh...tip....I'll go to your sources next time.

Lee they don't have that much temper as I cut the end off ewoth a hacksaw and finished the rest with a dremel cutoff wheel. Best tool I have and most used.
What brand drill and taps did you use. I purchased Irwin brand at HD and the 6-32 tap broke in the hole. The drill bit for the 10-24 did not even make a dent in the prybar, it just started glowing and melted the end. And yes I know how to drill and tap a hole. I have done it for years.

Maybe you would ruffle less panties if you said you based your design off an Easy Wood tool.

Unless you really like getting letters from Craig Jackson's attorney, I wouldn't use that phrase, "Based your design off an Easy Wood Tool". . Trust me his attorney and I have exchanged several letters. but I'm still here Also the Chinese Carbide from Global isn't as durable as the German carbide, but it is about a1/3 the price.

I'm allowed to make anything I want and call it anything I want for personal use.

Try using hot rolled steel.
Cold roll stresses up when it's processed.
Mill finish is not pretty but a few minutes on a belt sander will improve that a lot.
finally put a little gun Blueing on it - i like the dark finish ti helps with the rust.
